House Painting


It's been a while, but yesterday I went to another Art Impressions class at the Glitter Pot given by Jane Gill. It's such a therapeutic day, in the lovely bright class room, shut away from everything, painting and stamping!
The stamps used are from the English Countryside sets, and are also available as individual stamps. The cottages were stamped onto water colour paper and then, after washing on the background and painting the cottages, we used various foliage and flower stamps to create the bushes etc. All of the stamps were inked up using watercolour markers. The painting was done using the same markers scribbled onto a white tile, and picking up the colour with a paintbrush. I had a lot of fun making these cards - but painting buildings is definitely not one of my strong points!

Oh, I just love watercoloring the Art Impressions way! I have taken several different Art Impressions classes, the last one was the flower cart with the cobblestone street (I did a post about it) I think you did an excellent job! I really want those stamps now!
